Tobias (Toby) Moskowitz, PhD 1998
Fisher Black Prize Winner and Finance Innovator

Widely recognized as one of the top young professors in his field, Moskowitz became the Fama Family Chaired Professor of Finance at the University of Chicago's Booth School of Business in 2008. A year earlier he was the winner of the Fischer Black Prize, which honors the top financial economics scholar in the world under the age of 40. The prize has been awarded just three times since its inception in 2002; Moskowitz, who was the second person to win the award, following former International Monetary Fund chief economist Raghuram Rajan, was cited for his "ingenious and careful use of newly available data to address fundamental questions in finance." He has also won numerous awards for his papers, and currently serves as a research associate for the National Bureau of Economic Research, an associate editor at the Journal of Finance, and was a co-editor of the Review of Financial Studies.  His work has been cited by many media outlets, including the Wall Street Journal, New York Times, Financial Times, and a 2005 speech by former Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan.
